Morten Solbakken, CEO of Conax – a global technology provider recently acquired by the Kudelski Group, has been announced as a winner of a Finance Monthly CEO Award 2014
About the awards
Every year, Finance Monthly magazine identifies and honors the most respected companies and their leaders. The award recognizes an extraordinary individual who has shown the strategic foresight and leadership to deliver superior performance over the past 12 months, effectively managed all key stakeholders and prepared the organization for the next phase of growth, and in the process, helped create an enduring organization which has had a deep beneficial impact on a wider community and society at large.
The CEO Awards is compiled by a dedicated team of researchers, who draw on the views of thousands of stakeholders including investors, analysts, executives, employees, and media professionals worldwide. The research results are used to inform and identify best management practices and critical success factors, and ultimately recognise achievement in business.
Morten Solbakken’s award comes just a few months after the Kudelski Group acquiring Conax from telecoms provider, Telenor. Solbakken sees the award as a reflection of the success of the broader team. He comments:
“This is a recognition of our entire organization – it is my teams’ dedication to and excellent execution of our repositioning strategy that has cemented the base on which we will now further develop, under new ownership.”
Editor-in-chief Finance Monthly, Mark Palmer commented in a Finance Monthly press release: “The success of every organisation is down to the depth of talent that it is able to attract and the ability of a CEO to deliver commercial success by unlocking that talent. The CEOs listed within Finance Monthly’s CEO Awards publication are proven corporate leaders who deliver results and have achieved considerable success in their respective sectors.”
